When I was five years old or something, I was legit terrified by this book and thought Miss Nelson had an evil twin. Thirty years later, someone posted a photo of Miss Viola Swamp and encouraged people to comment on who it was. I couldn't remember the name but I sure remembered being scared. I read others' comments and got ahold of this book, happily. This is cute! I'm glad I got to read it again. I figured out what was up quickly this time, and the ending made me giggle a little. Turns out it was made into a series. I hope kids today enjoy it. ( )
